    rather, how stupid can I get?

    How is this for brainfog.

    I bought a few books from amazon with the play for the bookclub -

    I'm looking at them last night wondering which one to start on and thought - 'I've seen this before' -

    - it's double was lying on my table. I'd bought the same book twice. Hadn't even read it.

    DUH and double DUH!!!

    It is because of things like this, that I do from time to time myself, that I tell people:

    "I don't have to play dumb, it just comes naturally to me."

    Last year I was talking to someone and she recommended a book. I told her I remember reading it years ago and can't find so I would go out and buy another copy. I did and few days later going through my bookcase guess what I found. DUH!! It is so nice to know that I am not alone in doing dumb

    don't it! Last year I bought four CDs. Turned out to be dupes of ones I had at home.

    Couple days ago I got up from the computer and went to get a coke. Couldn't find one. Not in the frige, on the counter, etc. Went back to the computer. There it was.

    One such incident is amusing. Several a day is depressing. If this keeps up I'll be qualified to run for office.

    I posted the above twice, and had to come back and delete one.

    Wow, I can really relate! It's become a joke around my house when I do stupid things. I'll ask my husband things that I have just got done asking, or tell my daughter a story that I've already told her.

    I bought toilet paper one day after work because we were almost out. The next day after work, stopped and bought some again because I remembered we were almost out. Guess we're stocked for awhile. LOL.

    If that makes you stupid then I must be a dumb a@@....

    I buy multiples of magazines all the time, well they do have pretty pictures on the covers....just did it again a few days ago, lol!!

    And Rock, I need my daughter with me when buying cd's and dvd's because I need her to remind me of what I already own, I can never remember.

    That is just about the stupidest thing I've ever heard anyone do, and I've never in my life done anything like it.

    here too. I would hate to have to add up all the times I've bought something twice. The upside is if I cannot remember where I put one copy there's a duplicate somewhere.

    From movies to books to CDs to groceries I've bought em'all more than once. That's why I dyed my hair from golden brown to strawberry blonde. Figured I might as well have everything match. ;o)

    Oh, by the way, most of my life I was a natural blonde. Until I reached my mid thirties. No offense meant here to other blondes. Just making fun of ME!

    I have many brain fog moments, brain dead sometimes but this is the first time I've done something like this.

    Glad to see I am not alone.

    Laughing out loud at Ken's reply.

    Your post seems to have triggered a lot of sympathetic response, Rosie.

    Of course, we are not really stupid. We just do stupid things.

    Very witty, Ken.
